Scott Marzato, a homegrown Novocastrian, spent 5 years in Sydney training with some of Australia’s best Sports Doctors, Physiotherapists, Massage Therapists, Chiropractors and Nutritionists. Throughout this time Scott has treated many high-profile athletes from across a vast array of sports including the Sydney Swans, Wallabies, NRL, A-league and NSWIS Swim team.
Scott spent 5 seasons with the Sydney Swans as a Sports Trainer and Massage Therapist, travelling with the team to their games all over Australia. Being the first point of call on the field, Scott assisted the players with their many injuries. Scott also provided the Sydney Swans players with maintenance massages through the week, to assist in keeping their bodies in good shape, helping them to cope with their intense training regime.
Throughout the 2010/11 and 2021 to present seasons, Scott provides maintenance massage to the A-league team, the Newcastle Jets. He also treated the Wallabies players in 2014 while they were training and playing in Sydney.
When Scott returned to Newcastle in 2016, he opened his own Sports & Remedial Massage clinic, Elite Muscle Health. He and his competent team covered many travelling sports teams from different codes that travel here to play. NRL teams like Melbourne Storm, Penrith Panthers and Gold Coast Titans and A-League teams such as Newcastle Jets, Melbourne Victory and Brisbane Roar are just a few that trust us for their soft tissue maintenance when playing in Newcastle.
In 2019, Scott bought Hunter Physio from his long-term personal Physio and friend, Paul Hazell. This allowed Scott to bring his team across from Elite Muscle Health to bolster the already quality Hunter Physio team. Within a year we slightly rebranded becoming Hunter Physio Sports Clinic and have an impressive team of therapists and admin staff.
Scott has a strong sports background playing representative Rugby Union for Newcastle and being selected multiple years to play for NSW Country. He currently competes in triathlons and enjoys strength training and Pilates. Scott has suffered many different serious injuries throughout his sporting history and spent many hours in rehabilitation with one of Newcastle’s best physiotherapists, Paul Hazell. Scott’s many injuries lead him to pursue a career in sports remedial massage having realised he can remain connected to sports in a major way and with new motivation.
My main focus is:
Q. What are your core beliefs about wellness and health?
That to help reach your maximum health potential, you must not only eat healthily and exercise but look after the mind as well. Take time out of our busy lives to relax and enjoy yourself, everything in moderation. Healthy mind, body and soul.
Q. What key health lessons do you like to impart to patients?
To take time in the day to have a little stretch and move your joints around, many of us these days spend too many hours in certain postures that are not healthy for our bodies. Taking as little as a few minutes a couple of times a day can make a big difference!
Q. What do you enjoy about your job?
Working with people and helping them achieve a level of health and happiness they desire.
Q. What are your extracurricular passions?
I love being fit and active so in my spare time I train and compete in Triathlon, ocean swims, gym, Pilates, yoga and love going to the beach. I am also passionate about spending time with my fiancé and son, my friends and working on my vintage muscle car. I love just about all sports but my main interests would be swimming, cycling, running, rugby union, rugby league, football (soccer) and AFL.
